In industrial power transmission, some of the most important components are the couplings
. These are devices that help to connect shafts
(driving and driven) to help transmit torque. One of the main types of couplings is referred to as beam coupling/ helical coupling. It is recommended for industrial applications because it allows some parallel offset and angular misalignment. Beam coupling clamp style is preferred because it does not have backlash that are common in other couplings. In most industrial facilities, it has become very common because you can add more features without affecting the single piece integrity.
Note that the materials used to design beam couplings can affect its performance and suitability, especially in allowing misalignment. For example, aluminum is preferred for beam couplings used in food applications, and aerospace. However, couplings for other industrial applications are mainly designed using titanium or alloy steel.
